Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.

    Freddie Grays Genocide: What would Malcolm X Do (What would he say)? - Dr. Alli Muhammad

    in Politics

                                                                              JUSTICE FOR FREDDIE GRAY SPECIAL SERIES
    Freddie Grays Genocide: What would Malcolm X Do (What would he say)? Is Our Struggle [today] Just A Dream or Is It By Any Means (Necessary)


    Dr. Alli Muhammad CGIC-RBPP goes deep into the how we have ignored the "necessary" message of Malcolm X and have restricted ourselves to the soundbite "dream" of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, dictated to us by our oppressor, diliberately [avioding our freedom] [and] surbordinating our  struggle to a controlled US domestic "civil rights" (only, struggle) paradigm. 
    (Though, Baba King, actual stood for [Black] Human Rights. )
     


    However, the message that Baba Malcolm X gave us, was a Revolutionary Struggle, By Any Means Necessary, with a political Black Human Rights warfare/platform.We have been led to believe that all we can do is rely on the oppressor, beg their courts, congress, senate, government of and  in the land of our captivity, to stop them from oppressing us "civilly". While our human existence is being criminally & violently removed, violated, & exterminated.


     


    Baba Osagyefo Olugbala Revolutionary Goon, General Dr. Alli Muhammad M.S., PhD, MD AKA "Super Nigga". Fights for us on many battlefields he is our BOLD REVOLUTIONARY BLACK POWER WARRIOR GENERAL. Dr. Alli Muhammad is the Chief-General-In-Command of the RBPP,  the General in Command of the Black Race, Community, Nation and movement. BLACK POWER!!!!!!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


    Diaspora Group Commends House Chairman for Urging Investigation into Rwandan Human Rights Abuses


    At Hearing, Rep. Chris Smith Questions President Kagame’s Role in Killings, Disappearances


    WASHINGTON, DC (May 20, 2015) – Democracy in Rwanda Now (DIRN), a non-profit, non-governmental organization, on Wednesday praised the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations for urging an investigation into Rwanda’s human rights record and President Paul Kagame’s role in a series of troubling events including killings and disappearances of dissidents.


    Subcommittee Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ) called some of the recent reported abuses “serious crimes” and said the international community needs to take a “very aggressive look” into what President Paul Kagame’s complicity was in the disappearances and killings of dissidents. “If there are death squads being deployed to kill the diaspora and political opponents...we need to get to the bottom of this,” he said.


    The chairman made the remarks at a hearing Wednesday called “Developments in Rwanda,” which he called to examine “persistent, credible reports of human rights abuses by this government both inside and outside the country,” and “how this reality impacts US policy toward Rwanda.”


    “Any investigation into the assassinations, attempted assassinations and disappearances of Kagame dissidents is welcome news,” said one of the hearing witnesses David Himbara, a former top economic aide to Kagame and coordinator for the North American branch of DIRN. “I applaud Chairman Smith and Ranking Member Karen Bass for their leadership on this very serious and important issue. The Rwandan people deserve to live in a free and democratic society without fear
